Thread: Cost of ROM
14-06-2011 10:23 AM #16
And yes, the items listed all are necessary. My friends will be helping out with the decorations. They have been giving me ideas. So I guess it sld be good? Hehe. Trying to keep it simple so flowers, yes, might be necessary, but we are thinking of decorations that are "outside the box" As for the camera, it usually cost like $100? It's the films that are expensive. I might get one myself. Hehe. Kinda paiseh to receive that from my friend! But we'll see how it goes :P

Hmm, floral decorations are not so expensive if you go to the wholesale centers instead of the small florists. if you wanna save further, can DIY, it costs ~$1 per flower from wholesalers. So with $150, you get 150 flowers already! i'm refering to standard roses lah.. prices vary for different types of flowers. Will be worthwhile checking out these wholesalers, i figured the prices halve and you get double the number of flowers!

Any ideas where those wholesalers are located? Are those located at markets consider? Hehe

haha markets.. u can get flowers but i doubt they actually will do the decorations for you? wholesalers are located all over singapore actually. you can try far east flora, which has alot alot of outlets.. so will be convenient for you wherever you live / having the ROM etc. there's also sing see soon, jimei... you can check them out. they charge differently tho, so would be good if you can go down and talk to them about your requirements, and see which of them quote the best price for you.

Thanks! I only need the flowers I guess? And get ideas from decorations online (:

i thought of doing tt too, getting flowers then my friends to help put them up. but it really adds up to alot of work, which has to be done on the morning of the wedding. Plus, i want alot alot ALOT of flowers. so considering the time constraints and not wanting to tax my friends THAT much, i'm thinking of getting the wholesaler to do up part of the venue, and provide 2 floral stands (which are harder to do for amateurs). then my friends will add on to the flowers, and do up the reception decorations, solemnization table etc.

Ahhh! Good idea, I dont know that wholesaler do decorations too! I think I wont need alot of flowers. Mine is just a simple ROM event. Just need some extra simple decoration other than what was provided by the hotel
15-06-2011 02:24 PM #25
yes they do! ohh hotel has decorations, then it might be easier. i'm doing up my entire venue, that's why. why don' you consider fake flowers or paper flowers, or something that can be kept, so that you can actually keep it for your AD (if you have one) too? Then you can spend time making it personalized, and yet not waste the effort coz it can be used twice ^_^

I've considered that! Not paper flowers or fake flowers but other hand-made decorations. Like signage etc. I've done a couple for my friends before (for birthdays luh) so I think it sld be ok for weddings too? Just that I don't really have the time :S Luckily I applied for like 2-3 weeks leave/off before my wedding. So hopefully I can do up everything by then!
15-06-2011 03:31 PM #27
whoaaa 2-3 weeks is a long leave!! i don't intend to take anything.. maybe 1 day before to rest at most, but probably not. i want to take more leave after instead.. to HOLIDAY!! hahahah

Hmm.. are you giving out wedding invitation? If you are, you can do it in the form like an air tickets/planes? Instead of tickets, u can paste photos of the places you've been too! And maybe u can also have a not-so-traditional march in. Something like... you holding those vintage luggage with urs and ur HTB arms hooked together(short dress instead of a long one)
Oh! You know the movie "Up in the air"? There this one wedding scene where the couple pin their photos on a map (on the places they have been to) Maybe you can do that too.
Haha. Just my 2 cents worth of view (:

haven't thought abt the marchin actually. good idea! i thought of doing tt for the pageboy+flowergirl, but didn't realize i can do it too! haha i think we will look like air stewardess and pilot!! hehe
i haven't watched that movie before? but i've seen online photos of weddings where they did just that (maybe copied from the movie!). my htb and i saw just last weekend a gorgeous world map that looks almost 3d (with visual effects). it was soooo grand coz it's 2m by 3m huge! we were contemplating spending $175 just to get that map. but dunno where to put. hahaha. if i do a map with pins, i will do it facebook style.. haha.. u noe, "places you've been to" those tags. still thinking if i wanna do that yet. but i will be having a postcards+postbox for my guestbook (they write on my postcards, and "post" the cards into a vintage postbox), then angbaos will go into a handmade globe-angbao box!
15-06-2011 04:34 PM #30
AHHHH. i like the globe-angbao box. You can get the map, and hang it in ur house in the future. Add on to whatever place you've been too. Like a display. You can just "tag" one photo of the place you've been too. solemnization Im thinking maybe you can do it like post-cards? But if u've already done it, then the passport+visa thing is a great idea too!
Yea. the march in will be sooo cute! U can wear a small head-piece on ur hair. Have a lil twist by wearing those pilot look-a-like hat. And ask ur BF to march in with aviator! Kinda cute too (with one hand in the pocket)
